Shots of bringing our 170A home from Washington and some GoPro video (starts 20 seconds in) of her in action. What a great plane. They sure don't make them like they used to.
Was N9593A and has since been re-registered with N170DW.
Cessna 170 - The Ebony Airliner
Beautiful Cessna 170B. Mark Menendez talks about this classic aircraft,
flight instruction, and it once being owned by a Tuskegee airman. The plane
was based at St. Augustine, FL (KSGJ) when this was shot and has since been
sold. This was my first aviation video--made before I learned that video is
about motion! We do walk-around a few minutes into it.

Cessna 180 Visits a Farm
A couple of friends and myself decided one day to visit a neighbor's cow
pasture behind his house in central New Hampshire. We thought it would be
important to document that we landed and took off from said field. Nothing
beats a Cessna 180 for missions like this. JM and DF thanks for your
participation and laughter.
1950 Cessna 170 Landings
1950 Cessna 170A Landings
In October of 2005 my dad flew his 1950 Cessna 170A from NE Washington to
NW Oregon. This was his last flight. After around twenty years of flying
the 170 dad decided it was time to give up flying and sell the plane. When
I learned this I instantly let him know I was interested in purchasing the
170. Due to a daughter starting collage and financial commitments relating
to a new business, I didnt have even close to enough cash to purchase the
plane. However, I did have an old Harley Davidson. We worked out a
Harley/plane trade along with a payment plan for the difference. This vides
is a record of dads last flight as he delivered the 170. The second half of
the video shows my instructor making three landings under dads supervision.
I earned my pilot's license a year and a half later in 2007.
